How to create a One-Minute Video
Did you know that candidates with a video intro get contacted 10 times more? Yes, it’s important!
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video has to be worth at least 1.8 million words. Because video shoots at 30 frames per second, therefore 1 second of video = 30,000 words and 30,000 words x 60 second = 1.8 million. Ta-da!
Your one-minute video is going to boost your chance of landing a job dream significantly because your potential employers get to see who you are and make a personal connection. That’s why we added this feature.

Shoot several takes if necessary.
Don’t recite your resume and avoid reading.
You may talk about these following:
First name only
Little bit about yourself (personality, hobbies, work ethics, etc)
Job skills (What are your specialities?)
What makes you a good fit for the position?
